Dietary Supplement. With 5 mg folic acid. Pregnancy is a wonderful time in a woman's life, full of new experiences and possibilities. During pregnancy, a woman's nutritional needs both increase and change. Natures Options Expecting Mother provides optimal nutritional support in a new powerful, easy to take formula. A serious concern for an expectant mother during pregnancy is protection of her child from abnormal development. Neural tube defects are defects of the spinal column which cause conditions such as spina bifida and may lead to paralysis of the legs. Research suggests that high doses of folic acid are the best defense against neural tube defects. The dosage in Natures Options Expecting Mother are significantly higher than those found in leading competitive formulas. In one clinical study performed in London, it was shown that while the recommended level of folic acid fortification in the US would produce a 20% reduction in NTDS (Department of Environmental and Preventative Medicine, Wolfson Institute of Preventative Medicine, Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Charterhouse Square, London, UK [Prof. N J Wald, Prof M R Law, Prof J K Morris]: Department of Cardiology, St. Mary's Hospital, Milton Rd, Portsmouth, UK [D S Wald]. As published in The Lancet, Vol. 358 December 15, 2001. Page 2069), maximum protection was achieved at 5 mg of folic acid. At 5 mg of folic acid, incidence of NTDS was reduced by 85%. Natures Options believes that it is vitally important for a woman to receive the best protection possible for her child against neural tube defects, so we have chosen to go with the 5 mg dose. In addition, Expecting Mother has been synergistically balanced. Vitamin D3 supports fetal growth and bone calcification, while vitamin C is needed for healthy cell development. A powerful blend of B vitamins supports production of energy and the development of the nervous system. Lutein, a precursor to vitamin A, helps with neural development and healthy eyes. Together these essential nutrients combine to meet or exceed a woman's daily nutritional needs. Expecting Woman uses the highest quality of chelated ver possible for superior absorption (Prescription for Nutritional Healing, Third Edition. Phyllis A. Balch, CNC. Penguin Putam Inc., 2000. Page 25). Chelated iron supports blood cells and helps prevent anemia during pregnancy and chelated zinc may help a woman resist infections during pregnancy. Chelated copper supports the nervous system, healthy bones, and the synthesis of proteins. Iodine, provided from kelp, helps to regulate growth, development and energy. These minerals are backed by magnesium which supports the function of nerves and muscles. Natures Options is proud to help mothers achieve optimal levels of nutritional support. We believe that Expecting Mother provides the highest level of protection from neural tube defects and helps mothers to lessen the risks of these conditions. We think that women who try our Expecting Mother Premium Multivitamin will find it convenient and effective. Natures Options pledges to produce only the highest quality products to support a healthier life. (These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
